You have just purchased a TCO'99 approved and labeled product!
Your choice has provided you with a product developed for
professional use. Your purchase has also contributed to reducing the
burden on the environment and also to the further development of
environmentally adapted electronics products.
Why do we have environmentally labeled computers?
In many countries, environmental labeling has become an established
method for encouraging the adaptation of goods and services to the
environment. The main problem, as far as computers and other
electronics equipment are concerned, is that environmentally harmful
substances are used both in the products and during their manufacture.
Since it is not so far possible to satisfactorily recycle the majority of
electronics equipment, most of these potentially damaging substances
sooner or later enter nature.
There are also other characteristics of a computer, such as energy
consumption levels, that are important from the viewpoints of both the
work (internal) and natural (external) environments. Since all methods
of electricity generation have a negative effect on the environment
(e.g. acidic and climate-influencing emissions, radioactive waste), it is
vital to save energy. Electronics equipment in offices is often left
running continuously and thereby consumes a lot of energy.
What does labeling involve?
This product meets the requirements for the TCO'99 scheme, which
provides for international and environmental labeling of personal
computers. The labeling scheme is developed as a joint effort by the
TCO (The Swedish Confederation of Professional Employees), by
Svenska Naturskyddsforeningen (The Swedish Society for Nature
Conservation), and by Statens Energimyndighet (The Swedish
National Energy Administration).
Approval requirements cover a wide range of issues: environment,
ergonomics, usability, emission of electric and magnetic fields, energy
consumption and electrical and fire safety.
The environmental demands impose restrictions on the presence and
use of heavy metals, brominated and chlorinated flame retardants,
CFCs (freons) and chlorinated solvents, among other things. The
product must be prepared for recycling and the manufacturer is
obliged to have an environmental policy which must be adhered to in
each country where the company implements its operational policy.
The energy requirements include a demand that the computer and/or
display, after a certain period of inactivity, shall reduce its power
consumption to a lower level in one or more stages. The length of time
to reactivate the computer shall be reasonable for the user.
Labeled products must meet strict environmental demands, for
example, in respect of the reduction of electric and magnetic fields,
physical and visual ergonomics and good usability.
On the Back page of this folder, you will find a brief summary of the
environmental requirements met by this product. The complete

Environmental requirements
Flame retardants
Flame retardants are present in printed circuit boards, cables, wires,
casings and housings. Their purpose is to prevent, or at least to delay
the spread of fire. Up to 30% of the plastic in a computer casing can
consist of flame retardant substances. Most flame retardants contain
bromine or chloride, and those flame retardants are chemically related
to another group of environmental toxins, PCBs. Both the flame
retardants containing bromine or chloride and the PCBs are suspected
of giving rise to severe health effects, including reproductive damage
in fish-eating birds and mammals, due to the bio-accumulative*
processes. Flame retardants have been found in human blood and
researchers fear that disturbances in foetus development may occur.
The relevant TCO'99 demand requires that plastic components
weighing more than 25 grams must not contain flame retardants with
organically bound bromine or chlorine. Flame retardants are allowed
in the printed circuit boards since no substitutes are available.
Cadmium is present in rechargeable batteries and in the
color-generating layers of certain computer displays. Cadmium
damages the nervous system and is toxic in high doses. The relevant
Bio-accumulative is defined as substances which accumulate within living
TCO'99 requirement states that batteries, the color-generating layers
of display screens and the electrical or electronics components must
not contain any cadmium.
Mercury is sometimes found in batteries, relays and switches. It
damages the nervous system and is toxic in high doses. The relevant
TCO'99 requirement states that batteries may not contain any mercury.
It also demands that mercury is not present in any of the electrical or
electronics components associated with the labeled unit.
CFCs (freons)
The relevant TCO'99 requirement states that neither CFCs nor HCFCs
may be used during the manufacture and assembly of the product.
CFCs (freons) are sometimes used for washing printed circuit boards.
CFCs break down ozone and thereby damage the ozone layer in the
stratosphere, causing increased reception on earth of ultraviolet light
with e.g. increased risks of skin cancer (malignant melanoma) as a
Lead can be found in picture tubes, display screens, solders and
capacitors. Lead damages the nervous system and in higher doses,
causes lead poisoning. The relevant TCO´99 requirement permits the
inclusion of lead since no replacement has yet been developed.
Lead, Cadmium and Mercury are heavy metals which are
Recycling Information

Operation Instructions
Thank you for purchasing this monitor, a high-resolution multi-scan color
Please read this guide thoroughly before installation.
This monitor has been tested and found compliant with the limits for a
Class B digital device, pursuant to part 15 of the FCC Rules. These limits
are designed to provide proper protection against harmful interference to a
residential installation. This monitor generates, uses, and can radiate radio
frequency energy. Harmful interference to radio communication may be led
as a result if it‘s not properly installed and used. However, there is no
guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation. If this
monitor does cause serious interference to radio or television reception,
resetting the monitor may determine it. Moreover, users are encouraged to
correct interference by doing one or more of the following:
Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.
Move the monitor and the receiver further away from each other.
Connect the monitor into an outlet on a circuit different from that to
which the receiver is connected.
Consult your local dealer or an qualified technician.
FCC Warning:
To assure a continued FCC compliance, a user must use a grounded
power supply cord and the provided shielded video interface cable with
bonded ferrite cores. Also, any unauthorized changes or modifications to
this monitor would void the user‘s authority to operate this device.

is for packing the unit to a small size for storage only.
Safety Tips
If smoke, abnormal noise or odor came out from your monitor, caution you
should remove the power cord immediately and call your service center.
Never remove the rear cover of your monitor cabinet. The display unit inside
contains high-voltage parts and may cause electric shock to human bodies.
Never try to repair your monitor yourself. Always call your service center or a
qualified technician to fix it.
No power
Make sure A/C power cord is securely connected to the power adapter and the
power supply is firmly connected to the monitor.
Plug another electrical device into the power outlet to verify that the outlet is
supplying proper voltage.
Make sure all signal cables are installed.
Power on but no screen image
Make sure the video cable supplied with the monitor is tightly secured to the
video output port on back of the computer. If not, tightly secure it.
Adjust brightness.
Wrong or abnormal colors
If any colors (red, green, blue) are missing, check the video cable to make sure
it is securely connected. Loose or broken pins in the cable connector could
cause an improper connection.
Connect the monitor to another computer.
According to WEEE regulation , this monitor can't be handled as
normal trash in Europe when it is out of usage. Please refer to the
